USER PROFILES IN ORGANIZATIONAL ENVIRONMENTS

Cláudio Teixeira, Joaquim Sousa Pinto, Joaquim Arnaldo Martins

Abstract

In an organizational/corporative environment, each user can perform different roles throughout the time. Dynamic user profiles can be used to accomplish this variation specification. A user profile is a set of information about a given user in a given context and on a specific period of time. The concept of dynamic profiling simply means that the relevant information about the user can vary in time. User profiling is usually related to web advertisement of goods and services for a user in a web site, by means of gathering information of the user’s interests and then harvesting the web over these interests. The profile discussed in this paper is service related, directly depending from the user’s condition in an organization.
